Being a great leader is something many mid-career professionals aspire to be. Your leadership journey probably began with some kind of management function, and someone told you it was time to be in a leadership role.
Leadership is challenging, and it’s not for everyone. But if you are in a leadership role or want to be in one soon, today’s conversation is for you.
Today, you will meet Beki Fraser. Beki joins John to talk about what an introverted skeptic is, how they lead, and how they impact change. Plus, what it means to be a servant leader, how to handle self-talk, how to be seen, heard, and acknowledged in any room or meeting, and some of the biggest leadership challenges and mistakes for 2023.
Make sure to check out Beki’s book, C.O.A.C.H. Y.O.U. The Introverted Skeptic’s Guide to Leadership.
